COOKING TIPS:

  • Use thin chicken breasts or chicken tenderloin meat.  Either cut of meat will work.
  • Use shredded Parmesan cheese. Do not use grated Parmesan cheese, use the shredded kind. What I usually do is buy a block of Parmesan cheese and shred it myself.  Freshly shredding the cheese results in the best sauce texture. You can, however, use store-bought pre-shredded Parmesan cheese.  Just do not use the grated kind.
  • You can use cooked spinach, frozen spinach, or fresh spinach. All will work.
  • Make this chicken pasta gluten free. All you need to do is use gluten-free brown-rice penne pasta instead of regular penne. You can also use gluten-free quinoa pasta or lentil pasta.

WHAT IS HALF-AND-HALF?

  • Half-and-half is the US milk product that combines 1/2 whole milk and 1/2 heavy cream or whipping cream to form a lighter cream (unlike heavy cream).
  • Substitute 1/2 cup of milk + 1/2 cup of heavy cream for 1 cup of half-and-half.
  • If you live in the UK, half and half would be the equivalent of single cream. Alternatively, you can mix half double cream and half regular milk (if you live in the UK).
